Research Data Management (RISE) Workshop for Organisations
As part of our Advisory Services, we offer a free workshop on mapping Research Data Management (RDM) capability to research organisations such as universities and medical research institutes. This workshop will enable you to self assess the maturity of your RDM services using the successful Research Infrastructure Self Evaluation (RISE) model.
About the RISE workshop
The workshop will bring together representatives from research, the Library, Research Office, IT, eResearch, Ethics and Integrity, Office of the DVCR, Records Office and HDR training to gain a shared understanding and perspective on future directions.
This shared knowledge can inform gaps, priorities and planning for RDM services across the organisation into the future. The workshop will take 2.5 hours and does not require pre-reading.
Workshop outcomes can include:
- identifying your institution’s current level of RDM service
- discussing current gaps in your institution’s RDM service
- identifying areas for improvement
- identifying priorities and which service areas are of higher priority
- input for a roadmap to increase the maturity of RDM service.
We’ve run this workshop with more than 11 universities and research organisations across Australia in recent years.
RISE was developed by the UK’s Digital Curation Centre and has been tested internationally by many universities. It breaks down the different levels of maturity of various services for research data management and sharing, and will help identify your own institution’s RDM maturity level. It will also allow you to compare your self assessment with other research organisations.
